TASA Signs Grant Agreement to Continue Conservation Efforts

TASA Signs Grant Agreement to Continue Conservation Efforts

Bigger fish and more fish: that is what the Turneffe Atoll Sustainability Association (TASA) is aiming for in their marine reserves. However, the COVID-19 pandemic caused a depletion in their donor base, which in turn resulted in less funding to maintain the operational costs. A 1.5-million-dollar agreement which was signed today is likely to help the organisation turn things around. Both the Turneffe Flats Hotel’s principal owner, Dr. Craig Hayes and TASA’s Executive Director, Valdemar Andrade have welcomed this important partnership. 

Forty percent of the funds will go directly to general operations and sixty percent will go towards future projects.
